Poppy Playtime-like game for mobile

Project Playtime is a free-to-play puzzle game from Visible Actions. This survival horror game lets you put on the GrabPack and explore the abandoned toy factory filled with different types of monsters. Solve puzzles while trying to survive traps and different parts where Huggy Wuggy and the gang are.

Horror fans will immediately point out similarities between Project Playtime and Poppy Playtime Chapter 1, the mobile port of the wildly successful horror-puzzle game from MOB Entertainment. This game, however, uses an entirely new map and puzzles. Similar games include Poppy Playtime Huggy Wuggy and Poppy Playtime: Chapter 2.

Solve puzzles and stay alive

As with its Poppy Playtime inspiration, Project Playtime also follows the same basic formula. It’s a linear adventure that has the player solving puzzles, running from monsters, and unlocking the next section of the toy factory. In solving the puzzles, you also use the iconic GrabPack. This robotic backpack is equipped with a pair of hands that can store power or push buttons in hard-to-reach spaces.

The design screams nothing but Poppy Playtime, too. From the user interface and the set design, down to the monsters, there’s nothing original about this game. However, the game’s execution still warrants recognition, with the assets rendered flawlessly. Even in the game’s short playthrough, you are treated to in-game elements that work smoothly. This also works well with the intuitive controls that the game comes in.

Unfortunately, while it gets the graphics correctly, the game remains very hard to appreciate because of its ads. Every time you complete a level and every time you lose, fullscreen ads appear. There are also instances where ads are unskippable. Even worse, there are ads that appear randomly as you play. Lastly, the game doesn’t have a proper ending, it just cuts off and returns you to the title screen.

A difficult-to-play Playtime game

To its merit, Project Playtime is one of the few Poppy Playtime remakes for mobile that absolutely nails the visuals on original levels. If you’re looking for a fair combination of puzzle-solving and frantic escapes, it’s also a good alternative despite feeling unoriginal at every turn. Unfortunately, its gameplay potential is wasted because of its incessant ads that basically interrupt the player at every turn.
